Kashi TLC Cherry Vanilla Soft-Baked Cereal Bars - Our latest fruity, fiber-filled, on-the-go friends? These bars. They make great midday snacks or quickie breakfast components... Plus, they've got that whole tasting-awesome thing going for 'em. Each bar has 110 calories, 3g fat, 100mg sodium, 23g carbs, 3g fiber, 9g sugars, and 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). Get your chew on!

Applegate Farms Savory Turkey Breakfast Sausage - Finding a breakfast sausage that tastes terrific but isn't crazy-high in fat can be a struggle. But these turkey links fit the bill! And since they're from Applegate Farms, the poultry comes from humanely raised turkeys and is devoid of nitrates, nitrites, gluten, and casein. A 2-link serving has 90 calories, 6g fat, 320mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, and 8g protein (PointsPlus® value 2*). We hate to be corny, but GOBBLE GOBBLE! (Kidding. We love to be corny!)
Special K Cracker Chips Baked Snacks - Our ideal world would definitely include guilt-free crunchy snacks everywhere (as well as world peace and talking dolphins). And cloud nine's getting closer, what with these crispy goodies! In both Sea Salt and Sour Cream & Onion, each massive serving (27 - 30 chips) has 110 calories, 2.5g fat, 230mg sodium, 22 - 23g carbs, 3g fiber, <1 - 1g sugars, and 2g protein (PointsPlus® value 3*). The Sour Cream & Onion will rock your socks off!

Crazy-Decadent Chocolate Finds!

Chocolate rules -- this is not news. But the fun discoveries we have to share with you are SO amazing, we can hardly stand it. READ!
Sarris Candies Pretzel Slims 100 Calories - When these items (a.k.a. the world's best chocolate-covered pretzels!) showed up at the HG HQ, we had no idea how addicted we'd become. Each package contains the perfect amount of milk-chocolate-covered treats (PointsPlus® value 3*)! And when you order a 6-pack of them now, you can get free shipping AND another 6-pack for free! Sign up, log in, and add one 6-pack of Slims to your shopping bag -- enter promo code HGSLIMS at checkout, and you'll get another pack and no-cost shipping. (Expires 3/9/11 at midnight.) Yes, that's BOGO and FREE SHIPPING. WE LOVE YOU, SARRIS!

Temptations by Jell-O Boston Crème Pie - Picture a bowl of custardy Boston cream pie filling topped with a layer of Magic-Shell-like chocolate. Sound appealing? That's what you get with this stuff! FYI, don't confuse this mix-n-chill dessert with the ready-to-eat single-serve versions or Mousse Temptations by Jell-O. (Although those are also awesome!) A prepared serving of this life-changingly unique item has 130 calories and about 5g fat (PointsPlus® value 3*).

New Flavors of Luna Protein Bars - These chocolatey treats aren't just packed with protein (12 grams each!); they're full of fudgy goodness too! The new flavors are Mint Chocolate Chip and classic Chocolate. (Shouldn't Chocolate have come before Chocolate Cherry Almond? Oh, never mind...) The whole lineup rocks, and each bar in it clocks in with 170 - 190 calories and 6 - 9g fat (PointsPlus® value 5*).

The Buzz...

In the continuing saga of Galeos World's Best Miso Caesar Dressing -- this is starting to feel like a soap opera -- the product has failed yet another round of nutritional tests. Galeos has been standing by its given calorie and fat counts, but after having failed two rounds of reliable testing, we're skeptical as well. For those of you who've been asking, tests found that stats for other dressings in the line were inaccurate too. Click for more on that and BEWARE! Like veggies through the salad bowl, so are the dressings of our lives... ***Have you checked out Google Recipe View? It's new and cool -- the feature allows you to exclusively search and browse through recipes. The problem? If a recipe isn't in a standardly formatted recipe database, GRV won't recognize it -- which means recipes on the HG site (as well as recipes posted in blogs) don't show up. Hmmm... ***If you're fishing for a new no-guilt menu item (do you see where this is going?), check out Ruby Tuesday's Blackened Tilapia with mango salsa -- sounds delicious and has only 230 calories and 8g fat (not including the sides, so choose wisely). It's part of the limited-time-only Seafood Festival menu, so catch it while you can! ***The front-runners have emerged in Popchips' search for the next VP of Pop Culture -- let's put a woman in charge by voting for Diane Mizota! Place your vote before the polls close on Wednesday (3/9), and you'll get a coupon from Popchips when you do! And that's all we've got. HG out!
